Gamepad supported with d-pad, start, and bottom and right buttons (Xbox A and B).

Instructions:

Red flowers determine how many other types of flowers you can plant - e.g. if you have 2 red flowers planted in a level you can plant 2 other plants. Different flowers have different effects, if you're not sure, experiment, or check the guide:

Accessibility:

Upon pressing the play button to begin the game half of the screen briefly flashes white. This flash should be slow enough to be safe, however if you have any concerns I would recommend downloading the "no flash" zip file and playing that version of the game instead, this version completely removes all flash effects. 

Sound is used, however there are no sound cues, the game can be played muted.

The plants all have distinct shapes, so colour vision should not be necessary to tell them apart.

This game was made for the Lospec game jam 2021, which had a resolution restriction, so it will likely be far easier to see and play the game in fullscreen or by playing the desktop version. If you have issues running the browser version check your cookie settings or try a different browser.
